Good reader, Not too fast and with consistant accents
UPDATE: I checked version 3 again. It is read by multiple volunteers, not a single person as I had thought. This version is far superior!
I liked this reader Tadhg Hynes. I enjoyed the different accents and the consistency of accents! As well, it is an English novel thus the reader seems more appropriate as opposed to an American reader as the woman that reads version 3. It was hard to remember the characters at times without seeing the names. Version 3 or 4 (this one) are good.
